    Unanswered: NET8 authentication

    Hi, I am trying to find out how secure is Net8 when doing the initial user login.

    Background: I have an Oracle client that uses Net8 to connect to an Oracle DB. During the connection, I need to supply username and password. However, I am unable to find any documentation if the password is transmitted in the clear or securely.

    Oracle talks about ASO but this is more for encrypting the data, ie payload. I am not interested in securing the data, just the password.

    Can someone advise me on this?

    In addition, how about JDBC in the above scenario?

    For a typical login, ie, sqlplus, oracle forms, etc, the password has been encrypted since sqlnet 2.3. I don't know about JDBC.
